Method for Detection of Target Nucleic Acids Using PCR

Higher specificity and faster detection

Dstl has developed an assay method for detecting the presence of particular nucleic acid
sequences which may be adapted to quantify the amount of the target sequence in a sample.
Using an assay of this type, a fluorescent label becomes incorporated only into the amplification
product allowing delivery of higher specificity and faster detection of target nucleic acids for
methods such as qPCR.
